Foot Care

Why should you live with feet pain when relief is just right around the corner. Tupelo Foot Clinic will do what is best to relieve your feet and make them happy! 
Treating your feet 
if your symptons are mild, changing shoes may be all the treatment you need. Using a splint or pad to hold your toes straight also may help. Or try cushioning corns and calluses with felt padding. If your symptoms are severe, surgery may be needed. The type of procedure often depends on whether your toe joints are flexible or rigid. 
Protecting your Feet
Stop foot problems before they get worse. Check your feet daily for changes. Look at the top and bottom of each feet, the heel, and between the toes. It may help to use a mirror. Call your doctor if you notice any of the following:
  • Red "hot spots," blisters, or sores
  • Corns or calluses
  • Color changes in the skin
  • Cracks in the heels or dry skin
  • Thick or yellow toenails

Hammertoes

With hammertoes, one or more toes curl or bend abnormally. This can be caused by an inherited muscle problem, an abnormal bone length, or poor foot mechanics. The affected joints can rub inside shoes, causing corns (buildups of dead skin).

There are many nonsurgical treatments for hammertoes, but if these are not effective, you may want to consider surgery.

Flexible Hammertoes
When hammertoes are flexible, you can straighten the buckled joints. Flexible hammertoes may become rigid over time.
Tendon Release

This treatment helps release the buckled joint. The bottom (flexor) tendon may be repositioned to the top of the affected toe (flexor tendon transfer). Sometimes, the top or bottom tendon is released but not repositioned (tenotomy).

Rigid Hammertoes

Rigid hammertoes are fixed (not flexible). You cannot straighten the buckled joints. Corns, pain, and loss of function may be more severe with rigid hammertoes than with flexible ones.

Arthroplasty

A part of the joint is removed, and the toe is straightened. In some cases, the entire joint may be replaced with an implant. When healed, the bones become connected with scar tissue, making your toe flexible.

Healing After Surgery
The severity of your condition, number of toes involved, and type of surgery done will affect your recovery time. Many people are able to walk right after surgery with a special surgical shoe. Full healing can take several weeks. Your health care provider can advise you on what to expect after surgery.
Foot Surgery: Neuroma, Plantar Callus, Hammertoes, or Bunions

Tight shoes and high heels can place extra pressure on the ball of your foot, causing neuromas and calluses. A neuroma is an inflamed nerve. It can cause pain, numbness, or burning. A plantar callus is a buildup of hard skin on the ball of the foot. The callus may feel like a stone in your shoe.

There are many nonsurgical treatments for neuromas and calluses, but if these are not helpful, surgery may be considered.

Neuroma

When two metatarsal bones are squeezed together, they may pinch the nerve that runs between them. The pinched nerve can become swollen and painful. This often occurs at the base of the third and the fourth toes. Standing or walking for a while can increase the pain.

Neuroma Removal

The enlarged portion of the inflamed nerve is removed. Most often, you can bear weight on your foot right away. You may have to wear a surgical shoe for a few weeks. When healed, a small area may feel numb, where part of the nerve was taken out.

Plantar Callus

When one metatarsal bone is longer or lower than the others, it presses on the skin beneath, forming a callus. Wearing shoes with thin soles and high heels can also place extra pressure on the ball of your foot. As a result, the callus may cause foot pain and irritation.

Bone Removal

The affected metatarsal bone is cut and aligned with the other metatarsals (oblique osteotomy). Screws or pins may be used to hold the bone in position. Only part of the metatarsal bone is removed. The plantar callus should go away on its own over time.
